Abandoning Jumu`ah and congregational Salah for a job

Q 5: What is the ruling on a man who is busy working during the whole week to the extent that he cannot Even leave work to offer Jumu`ah (Friday) Prayer?

A: It is impermissible that a person's work diverts him from performing Salah (prayer) on time. Rather, it is Wajib (obligatory) on every male Muslim to perform Salah at the Masjid (mosque) in congregation. This is in accordance with the Shar`y (Islamic legal) proofs and a way to avoid resembling the hypocrites.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
